Review for NAMI Florida Inc, Tallahassee, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and spent more than 15 years feeling alone and desperate in our quest to help our adult daughter who suffers from severe and persistent mental illness. On the recommendation of a girlfriend who had attended herself, we enrolled in Family-To-Family in 2009 and it was a life-changing experience for us. We encouraged our daughter to attend Peer-To-Peer, which she did. Although our journey is continues with its twists and turns, we are unquestionably a healthier family because we are empowered with knowledge -- about the disease and how to fight for her when she lacks the voice to fight for herself. After attending the class, I became a teacher of Family-to-Family, and subsequently a Board member of my local Orlando affiliate. It's the only way I know to give back to NAMI who strengthened my marriage and my family.
